Getting Ready at The Thompson Hotel

Alissa and Noble’s wedding day kicked off at the Thompson Hotel, a stone’s throw from District Winery. It’s the perfect spot for any wedding activity, blending chic comfort with convenience! Alissa’s gown from Elegance by Roya was a show-stopper, its trailing train adding drama to every step. The delicate flow of the fabric added a heavenly touch to her look, ensuring that every getting-ready photo captured was nothing short of breathtaking. Noble, complementing the elegance, donned a stunning black and white suit, his white dinner jacket and black bow tie setting a tone of timeless sophistication. 

An Intimate and Heartfelt First Look

The first look is your private bubble before the whirlwind. We had the absolute delight of teaming up with Rudney Novaes Photography for the first time, and oh, what an incredible experience it was! He effortlessly captured the heart and soul of their love and excitement. It’s these heartwarming moments, brimming with love and eager anticipation, that really bring home why we do what we do—we are so grateful to be a part of such special moments!

A Chic District Winery Wedding Ceremony

At District Winery, heads were turned with the venue’s stunning staircase right at the heart Alissa & Noble’s design. The modern staircase was softened with lush florals, creating a breathtaking ascent to a ceremony filled with anticipation and beauty. It wasn’t just a choice; it was a statement! Framing the couple’s flair and setting the scene for an entrance that took everyone’s breath away.

Wedding Portraits After the Ceremony

After the vows, the bridal party gathered for snapshots that captured more than just smiles—there was so much joy captured against the charming backdrop of District Winery.

A District Winery Wedding Reception

We absolutely love a District Winery wedding. Following their ceremony, we got to WORK spinning the reception area into an absolute dream setting for Alissa and Noble to celebrate with their family and friends. Guests stepped into a world dressed in chic monochromatic elegance, where the décor sang in sophisticated notes of black and white. The dramatic color palette was only softened by gentle touches of peach and whispers of baby’s breath. Every single detail and bloom added a layer of charm, transforming the space into something truly their own.

After the reception wrapped up, we kept the energy going with a rooftop after-party at the Thompson Hotel. High above the city, with the skyline around them, it was a lively spot to dance, laugh, and continue celebrating into the night. It was an absolutely seamless transition from the day’s festivities into an unforgettable evening.
